Produced from organic grapes with no added sulfites and with natural yeasts, this wine is as close to the terroir expression of Struma Valley, South Western Bulgaria, as one can get. The use of Grenache Noir is peculiar but otherwise the indigenous Melnik steers it towards a sublime expression of the Bulgarian wine heritage. Great with red meat and strong hard cheeses.
